Steam clouds rise above a line of fumaroles at Hulubelu volcano in SE Sumatra. Gunung Tangganus rises at the upper left, east of the North Hulubelu fumarole fields, which are aligned NE of and parallel to the Great Sumatran Fault, which runs the entire length of the island of Sumatra. Hulubelu, also spelled Ulubelu, is an elliptical, 4-km-long caldera or volcano-tectonic depression in SE Sumatra.
